Chest pains can be a sign of a heart attack in women, therefore it is important to look for other symptoms of heart attack and see a doctor immediately should the pains continue or become more intense. Heart attacks are a leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.
Other symptoms associated with a heart attack are upper body pain or discomfort into the arms, back, neck or jaw, as well as shortness of breath. If you are experiencing any combination of these symptoms with chest pain, you should call 9-1-1 immediately.
Experts have linked the progestin hormone in Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella to heart attacks in women who would not normally be at risk. These drugs can raise the level of potassium in the blood, which can cause a condition called hyperkalemia. Hyperkalemia, in turn, can lead to heart problems, blood clots, heart attacks or stroke.
The FDA has warned the makers of Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella, that the active ingredients in their drugs may lead to potentially serious heart and health problems.
